School Reviews

I am a current middle school parent at Calhoun and am very pleased with the progressive program. I'm impressed by the depth of understanding the students attain by learning in small groups. Teachers expect full participation in classroom discussions. My children's classes average 12-14 students so teachers understand each child's level of comprehension: who need more challenge or more support. At the culmination of an area of study, middle school students complete projects including a written report, presentation, and art project. These occur throughout the year in Humanities, Science, and Spanish/Mandarin with students either working independently or collaborating with classmates. At the middle school level, children receive a moderate amount of homework and are expected to be more thoughtful and thorough with the assignments. As a result, the students develop a deep understanding of the subject matter.
